The IQ Glass Showroom is the largest residential architectural glazing showroom in the UK, offering architects and designer’s examples of multiple architectural glazing options in a large purpose built environment.
We are constantly updating our showroom space to keep up with the demands of modern architecture as well as offering advanced glazing technologies to architects and designers for a one-stop-shop for all their architectural glazing requirements.
The freestanding ‘Glass Box’ within the courtyard highlights IQ’s large glass sliding doors system, minimal windows, with the oversized glass panels lining two sides of the building and opening on the corner. These slim framed glass doors have sightlines of only 21mm and are finished with a flush floor level. Here at The Courtyard Showroom, you will be able to feel the ease of movement in these glass panels even at the largest sizes available.

Within the Glass Box space is an auto opening roof light from ourGlassmotion range and a sliding pocket door to the rear. The space also incorporates a roof terrace completed with a walk onglass floor and frameless glass balustrades.
To the IQ offices itself, we showcase numerous examples of structural glass box extensions, incorporating bi-folding doors, a modern oriel window box, steel supports, glass beams and glass fins as well as the electrical glass solution Electro Chromic Glass.
